I have been interested in Chinese medicine since 1987 when travelling in China where I was involved in a serious bike accident. I met a blind Chinese medicine practitioner there who used a variety of effective methods to heal my injured arm, and this planted the seed for my Chinese Medicine practice. I have been in practice with Chinese Medicine since 2003. With my training ranging initially from therapeutic massage with the Maitri Foundation and shiatsu with the European Shiatsu School (ESS) with the great Chris Jarmey and George Dellar. I taught shiatsu for the ESS starting in 2006 and for my own school: East West College, from 2009. In that same year I started my acupuncture degree at College of Integrated Chinese Medicine (CICM) with the wonderful Angie and John Hicks who inspired the sense of importance to consider the emotional aspect of treatment.
I continue to teach for colleges in the U.K. and am co-principal of East West College, providing innovative CPD courses for acupuncture practitioners.
